Students and families virtual meeting this coming Wednesday, August 12

Greetings Fashion Families from Principal Daryl Blank

I hope this message finds you well.  I hope you and your families are safe and healthy!

I wanted to invite all students and their families to a virtual meeting this coming Wednesday, August 12.  I want to speak with you about two main items:


#1 - The NYC Department of Education health and safety plan for the reopening of schools


#2 – A Proposal About What the High School of Fashion Industries School Schedule Will Look Like in the Fall. The school’s programmer and UFT Chapter Leader, Derek Stampone, will be doing the presentation with me.

Here are the details for the meetings – there will be two meetings – one in the morning and one at night to provide flexibility for families.  The calls are limited to 250 people, but the calls will be recorded and shared with our families.  I am asking all students and extended families to watch the virtual meeting together because of the 250 person limit.
